bear989, I understand the reasoning behind the GT in whole. I understand why was it made the way it's made. But there are far more than two kinds of people (who wants GT and who doesn't). There's people who likes what GT ADDS to the game, but want to keep their existing experience intact. I like GT. I really like how it adds a tech span to the game, extending it for weeks. But what I don't like, is that it's ruining the familiar flow for the new people. For those who would like to get to GT step by step. Instead, GT is hammering them with a hammer to the head right from the start. Learning curve? Meh, **ck it. <- THAT is what I don't like about GT.
Having an option to "add, not destroy/replace/remove" would be a very needed one.
Well how old or your players that they need training wheels to learn something new? I dont understand what you have an issue with that is so hard, unless your trying to use GT6 witch is in alpha. instead of GT5 witch is complete, thanks to Greg and Blood.
if your new players was meant as you than why not join one of the servers represented here, there are many, like myself, that are willing to help those that need it, in learning all the wonders of Gregtech.
